This month I want to join Celia at Fig Jam and Lime Cordial and all her cooking compadres sharing with you what’s “In My Kitchen.” Celia’s blogs is one of those that I long to have more time to kick off my shoes and read all the way through, it’s such a wonderful canvas of musings, homey recipes, good advice and major DIY goodness (make your own butter!).
At any given time I’ve got lots of fresh, cooked, preserved and other edibles in my kitchen, along with a mess waiting to be cleaned up and cookbooks strewn all over the counter. This week I attempted to jam some elderberries (I’ll never do that again, or I’ll find some other poor sucker to pick each and every tiny berry from it’s potentially poisonous stem); harvested some pomegranates from our front yard; continued to buy and cook and eat grapes; made a curry with green beans; did some fun things with unripened and ripened dates; found heaven at an apron store; tried some gourmet marshmallows; read up a bit; found licorice jam; cooked a red kuri squash; made bran muffins; and set out lots of relish appetizer dishes at dinner time.
What is in your kitchen right now? I’d love to see and hear!
